    Lightbulb The Michigan Glass Project

    Our mission is to unite the artistic glass community through charitable events that showcase the talent and culture of Michigan. We are gearing up for this years' three-day glassblowing collaboration. Glassblowers from around the nation will together to make collaborative aquatic-based themed installations. 2012 proceeds from the sale of the pieces, monetary donations and silent auction wil go towards the Belle Isle Aquarium.

    This year's event will take place on June 15th-17th in Detroit, Michigan. We will kick off the festivities on the evening of June 14th followed by three days of live music, food, and glassblowers collaborating on multiple artistic creations. The event will provide a space for our sponsors, glass artists, vendors and other attendants to establish new connections

    The Belle Isle Aquarium is located in Belle Isle Park in Detroit, Michigan. It was the oldest continually operating aquarium in North America. It operated from August 18, 1904 to April 3,2005. Designed by architect Albert Kahn, the 10,000 square foot aquarium features a beautiful arched ceiling that is completely covered in green glass tile and trimmed with stainless steel.

    The non-profit groups, Friends of Belle Isle Aquarium along with the Belle Isle Conservancy are continually trying to find donors to aid in the re-opening of the Aquarium, On February 4th of this year, 4,600 people lined up to walk through the building for a one day opening. Currently the organization is working on the repair of the roof and getting the tanks running. There are presently 12 tanks containing fish, more than there have been since closing in 2005.
